Exhibition of Shakespeare's 
School-Books. 



On March eleventh, at quarter-past four, 
in College Hall Chapel, Mr. George A. 
Plimpton, the donor of one of Wellesley's 
greatest treasures, the Frances Pearsons 
Plimpton memorial library, exhibited and ex- 
plained his wonderful collection of fifteenth 
and sixteenth-century school-books. These 
books are of the kind which may have been 
used by Shakespeare in his grammar school- 
days. 

Mr. Plimpton exhibited first his copy of 
the "Margarita Philosophica," published in 
1504. This was the great text -book of that 
period. It contains, among other things, a 
picture representing the various stages of 
mediaeval education from the horn-book, 
through the trivium and quadrivium to moral 
and practical philosophy and theology. 
'Reprints from this picture were thoughtfully 
provided for distribution to the audience by 
Mr. Plimpton. 

There were three books,, dealing with the 
education of the young, in use at this time: 
Roger Ascham's "The Schoolmaster," 
Thomas Elyot's "Book of the Governour," 
and Brinsley's "The Grammar School." 
Mr. Plimpton exhibited his copies of these 
books, and read inter asting passages from 
them, illustrating the methods pursued in 
educating the children of Shakespeare's time. 

Shakespeare learned his alphabet from a 
"horn-book." This was generally a thin 
strip of oak, about three inches long by two 
and one-half inches wide, with a little han- 
dle. On one side of it was a piece of paper on 
which were printed the Lord's Prayer and the 
alphabet; this was covered by a semi- 
transparent piece of horn fastened down by 
thin strips of iron and tacks. These "horn- 
books" are now exceedingly rare, though Mr. 
Plimpton possesses eleven of them. The 
successor to the "horn-book" was a piece of 
cardboard containing the same things found 
on the "horn-book." Mr. Plimpton dis- 
played one of these and also an example of 
the "battledore," a folded card which suc- 
ceeded it. He then showed the audience a 
little manuscript, probably dating from the 
twelfth century, an example of the little 
books written to aid children, who had 
learned the alphabet, to take part in the 
church service. A copy of Henry VIII's 
English Primer, printed in 1546, was next 
exhibited. It contains a preface by the king 
himself, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Com- 
mandments, Graces, Matins, Lauds, the 
Litany and other prayers and psalms. Mr. 
Plimpton also had with him a copy "I Hart' 
"Orthography," printed in 1569, which 
extols the value of the English language; a 
copy of Thomas Wilson's "Art of Rhetoric," 
printed in 1553; a copy of the "Aii oi 
Logic," by the same authorjprinted in i.S^?; 



and copies of the only two dictionaries then 
in existence, Huloet's 1572, and Whithal's 
1553. 

In learning to write, Shakespeare probably 
made use of a writing-book like one in Mr. 
Plimpton's possession, which was printed in 
1570. It contains examples of various styles 
of writing, among them the secretary's hand, 
which bears a close resemblance to Shake- 
speare's signature. Those who wrote letters 
in those days probably used a "form-book;" 
and Mr. Plimpton read two very amusing 
examples of love letters found in his copy of 
a "form-book," printed in 1567. 

Shakespeare probably studied arithmetic 
in Record's "Ground of Arts," which was the 
first arithmetic published in England 1542, 
and geometry in Billingsby's "Euclid," 
1570. Copies of both these works were 
shown. Lilly's famous Latin grammar, no 
doubt, gave the poet his first knowledge of 
that language. Mr. Plimpton exhibited a 
copy printed 1512. He also showed a copy 
of Culman's first Latin reading-book, "Sen- 
tential Pueriles," printed in 1658; a copy of 
another Latin reading-book, "Colloquia 
Scholastica," the Latin dialogues of Car- 
dernis, printed in 1720; a copy of "Cato's 
Maxims," edited by Erasmus, (1553); and a 
copy of "^sop's Fables," in Greek and 
Latin, printed in 1551. If Shakespeare 
studied Greek, he probably used Melanc- 
thon's Greek Grammar. Mr. Plimpton is 
the fortunate owner of Melancthon's own 
copy, which is annotated and corrected in the 
author's own hand. 

Mr. Plimpton also exhibited a copy of 
Calvin's Catechism, (1580), one of Hunter's 
"Rudiments of Cosmography," (1548), and 
one of Ocland's " Anglorum Prollia, (1582). 

Those who were fortunate enough to be 
able to attend Mr. Plimpton's lecture found 
it a great privilege to see such a remarkable 
collection of rare books. 



MISS SCOVILLE'S LECTURE. 



The spirit of Elizabethan England, inter- 
preted by a vivid presentation of domestic 
architecture and social life in the sixteenth 
century, was the theme of a stereopticon 
lecture, given in College Hall Chapel, Thurs- 
day afternoon, March sixteenth. The 
speaker was Miss Annie Beecher Scoville; 
her subject: "The Domestic Life of the 
Elizabethans." 

The century of the Renaissance and 
Reformation, said Miss Scoville, in intro- 
ducing her subject, was characterized by a 
revolution, not only in thought and religion, 
but in economic and social life as well. In 
the reign of Henry VIII, the English feudal 
castle gave place to the "unarmed" dwelling. 
Moats were filled in to make gardens; the 
narrow, deep-set embrasures were changed 
to broad, open windows; tha severe feudal 
castle was superseded by the more inviting 
architecture of the Tudor-Gothic type So, 
with the passing of feudal conditions, we 
find I he beginning of our modern home in the 
Tudor manor house. During this same pe- 
riod, t he transfer of trade Eiom Eas1 I Wei I , 
by the discovery of America, broughl Eng- 
land into the forefront of commerce, thus 

revolutionizing her economic life. This in- 
flux of wealth and foreign products broughl 
comforts and luxuries into the home. 
Therefore, in the domestic architecture and 



home furnishings of the time, we can read 
the whole story of this change in the spirit 
and life of Elizabethan England. 

This story Miss Scoville presented by her 
lucid explanation of a series of pictures. In 
these she traced the changes from the cold 
feudal castle, through such pleasant, home- 
like chambers as those of Haddon Hall to 
the highly-decorative interiors at the close 
of Elizabeth's reign. From tapestries and 
carved ceilings to flower-pots and chimneys, 
each detail told its story. The slides were 
exceptionally clear, and the selection made 
interesting by the use of illustrations with 
especial historical connotation and by the 
choice of portraits by Holbein and other 
artists of the period. 

To the interest of the subject itself, Miss 
Scoville added an ease and charm of manner, 
animated expression, and a quiet touch of 
humor that made the afternoon truly de- 
lightful. 

THE SCIENCE CLUB LECTURE- 



The Science Club was addressed, on Tues- 
day evening, March 14th, by Professor 
Arthur G. Webster, who gave a very inter- 
esting and instructive lecture on agftpplaaas. 
Professor Webster explained the mechanical 
principles involved, the forces needed to 
procure an equilibrium, and the. action upon 
the plane of pressure due to velocity. An 
aeroplane, which is always heavier than the 
air, is not held up by the air, but by the mo- 
tion of the air, and since the force of sus- 
tentation depends upon the width of an 
aeroplane, it is built wide the way it is going, 
and not long. 

Professor Webster showed models of the 
three types of flying machines — the flapping 
machine, the screw propeller and the aero- 
plane — and described the history of each, 
tracing its development from 1872 to 191 1. 
Illustrating his lecture with lantern slides, he 
outlined the work in this line of Maxim, 
Lilienthal, the Wright brothers, Glen Cur- 
tiss, Bleriot, the Voisin brothers, Moisant, 
etc., and had diagrams of their various ma- 
chines thrown upon the screen. 

Many aspirations of the flyers have been 
attained: They have crossed the English 
Channel, the Mediterranean, the Irish 
Channel and the Alps, and successful flights 
have been made from London to Manches- 
ter and longer distances. These flights have 
only been achieved after many unsuccessful 
attempts, and the casualties have been 
enormous, and the proportion per year is 
becoming constantly larger. From 1890 to 
[910 the casualties numbered only eight; 
during the year 1910 they increased > > 
thirty-six, and thus far in 1911, they hive 
gone up to forty-four. Absolute reliance can 
never be put on aeroplanes, for no matt ei- 
how perfect the machine may be, the air 

never Mows in a steady, horizontal current, 
and the currents in the air arc impossible to 
control. 

Professor Webster did not ask his listeners 
1 it any of his asserl ions without proof, 
and t<>ok pains, by means of models and dia 
gramatic drawings, to corrob irate his state 
mini s A a ic ult , the lecture was a very 
convincing as well as a very interesting one.

EDITORIAL. 



The attitude of most Wellesley students 
toward health is a negative one. By this I 
do not mean that any Wellesley girl seeks to 
endanger her health, but that few of us make 
a positive effort to improve our health during 
our stay in college. In our struggle for 
academic glory and social success, and in our 
public spiritcdncss, we forget that these 
treasures are valueless unless we can provide 
a sound constitution to set them off. Too 
many of us fail to realize that, after this 
whirl of strenuousness is over, our life work 
is to follow, and that we will be unfit for it 
unless, during our college course, we gain 
mastery of our physical condition and sure 
poise. 

The fact that we do not attend first to 
health and then to other demands, is due, not 
to the too great number of other demands, 
hut to the lack of discrimination on the part 
of individuals in meeting these demands. 
The reason a girl gets exhausted is not that 
there have been too many things to do, but

„hat she has chosen to do too many things. 
We cannot bear to miss any of the good 
things that are put before us, and it is not 
until after the consummation of all these 
"rare treats" that we wonder why we went 
to that last lecture when we were so tired. 

Something is said about an atmosphere of 
strain. This atmosphere is due to the girls 
in college who take in not only the entire 
social schedule, but also the entire theatrical 
schedule in Boston, and an ample supply of 
midnight confabs, to boot. The girls who 
are put on too many committees by all- 
trusting Faculty, and the girls who are the 
really serious workers, usually conceal the 
strain if there is any; this power of theirs for 
self-control is but one evidence of their supe- 
rior efficiency. 

If the general interest in health were a 
real and positive one, a girl would be ashamed 
to admit that she had had less than the pre- 
scribed amount of sleep; she would consider 
it a disgrace to have black circles under her 
eyes and stooping shoulders and a poor car- 
riage; in our present attitude these attributes 
seem to bespeak a sort of martyrdom, and 
never fail to evoke sympathy. 

If there were real interest in this funda- 
mental consideration, more girls would ex- 
plore the rare country walks that surround 
us instead of confining their exercise to a 
walk to the Woman's Exchange. There 
would be much less stupid sitting indoors 
and more real desire for gymnast ies and out- 
door play. If health were really a consider- 
ation with us, we would take that fifteen- 
minute rest just after lunch, and we would 
stop and rest just before we felt tired rather 
than just after. 

Someone has invested some money in a 
college education for you. If you return 
home any more incapacitated physically 
than when you left, remember that it is en- 
tirely your fault, and that the investment is 
a failure. If you leave college without 
physical poise that will be a lias'is lor you to 
build your future career upon, you have 
missed one of the most useful things Welles- 
ley had to give you. 

The need for keener interest in and zeal 
for health, as a primary consideration in 
college, is a large one. Each one of us, for 
our own sake, and for (lie sake of the college 
generally, must object more strenuously to 
the practises of our friends which arc menac- 
ing the all-essential law:; of physical sanity; 
and we must make an urgent plea, by words 
and example, for all those careful considera- 
tions which can help so greatly to make us 

perfectly poised women.

becomes vacant at the close of the present school year, i. e., in June, 
191 1. The probability is, that this position offers an opportunity 
for work in the foreign field without a permanent contract under any 
missionary board. The environment would probably be very 
pleasant and educative. Any one interested is asked to address 
Miss Caswell, 130 College Hall, or to arrange for a personal inter- 
view. 



Students who have specialized in music are needed for Foreign 
Missionary work in the middle West. Anyone who is interested 
is asked to apply to Miss Caswell, 130 College Hall. 

The management of a small hotel in the neighborhood of New 
York, well known to some members of the college, wishes to secure 
the services of a former student, who can relieve the ladies in charge 
by meeting guests, opening rooms for inspection, and keeping 
account of rooms rented. The house and environment would be 
very pleasant and the living of the best. The assistant is needed 
at once, but it is possible that some arrangement for the spring 
would allow a student now in college to take up the work at the 
beginning of the summer vacation. The compensation will be in 
the home and the privileges of the house. 

Miss Josephine H. Short wishes to take abroad this summer a 
party of Wellesley Alumnae and undergraduates. England, France, 
Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain will be visited. 

The party sails for Liverpool from New York the 27th of June, 
and leaves Gibraltar for New York, September 2. 

Information concerning the trip may be obtained from Senorita

of " Hippo lytus," expressed a great wish to appear in the role of

attachment to her step-son Hippolytus, best known to the modern 
stage by translations of the Euripides tragedy of the same name 
and by Racine's tragedy ''Phedre" as acted by Madame Sarah Bern-

David Belasco will present Frances Starr at the Hollis-street 
Theater, Monday, for a limited engagement in "The Easiest Way," 
Eugene Walter's greatest play. She will have the support of the 
Xew York cast, including Joseph Kilgour, Edward H. Robins, John 
P. Brawn, Louise Randolph and Violet Rand, and the scenic equip- 
ment provided by David Belasco for the two years' run of the play 
at the Belasco Theater in New York. 

Inasmuch as "The Easiest Way" is produced under the personal 
direction of David Belasco, there is no necessity to dwell upon the 
perfection of its setting. 

No play in years has created such a profound sensation as 
"The Easiest Way." Its record has been phenomenal. It was 
played to crowded houses at Mr. Belasco's Theater in New York 
and since then has established records for attendance in the many 
principal theaters throughout the country. There will be the usual 
Wednesday and Saturday matinees during Miss Starr's engagement. 
The evening performances will begin promptly at 8.00 o'clock and 
the matinee at 2.00 o'clock. — Adv.

MR. HADFIELD'S KIPLING RECITAL. 



The econd of of readings offered by the Elocution 

1 n in College Hall Chapel on Monday evening, 
March i.v al 7.30 o'clock. The reader was Mr. Henry J. Hadfield, 
igramme of the poems of Rudyard Kipling. Mr. 
■ h, ri •■< nt popular cu ;tom of reading in 
All thai l ■ ccpmpli hed in his art, he ha done un- 

ci the clear, resonant character of his voice was 
. ellenee of his own t mining. 
Mr. 1 1 choi Mr, Kipling' Life and work, 

mum oi "Tommy Atkins," the British 
I he " Barrack-room Ballads: "Tom- 

" Fuzzy- Wuzzy, ttial Day" and "Gunga 

Din," with ■ pathy and vividness oi feeling. 



He then read a number of Kipling's satiric poems, wearing, 
this time, the white linen dress of the Anglo-Indian. "Paget, M. 
P.," "Study of Air Elevation in Indian Ink," and "Army Head- 
quarters," he rendered with great enjoyment of their humor, and 
bringing the latter home to his audience keenly. Mr. Hadfield next 
recited some of the more serious of Kipling's poems, including the 
well-known "Recessional" and "If." He was perhaps less dramatic 
in his delivery of these than in those before, but held us constantly 
with the tense reserve of his emotions-. 

Mr. Hadfield then appeared as the Scotch engineer, giving 
" McAndrew's Hymn" with a great deal of vividness in spite of its 
often-criticised technicalities. His Scotch dialect was also admira- 
bly convincing. The programme was concluded with two of the 
author's typically-Indian poems, "The Dove of Dacca" and "The 
Ballad of East and West," given in the gorgeous robes of the Rajah 
and the robber chief. 

As a whole, Mr. Hadfield was a most vivid reader. We felt 
constantly impressed with the intensity and bigness of his emotions 
as he recited, and yet they were held in irreproachable restraint. 
He seemed so imbued with enthusiasm and love for his selections

MR. FULLER'S LECTURE 



At 4.30 o'clock, Wednesday afternoon, in the chapel of College 
Hall, Mr. Richard Fuller of Boston gave an interesting talk on 
"Cherchell, North Africa: The Romance of the Daughter of 
Anthony and Cleopatra." In a few sentences, Mr. Fuller transport- 
ed his audience to the Roman Forum to witness the triumph of 
Csesar returning with captives and spoils from his conquest of 
Mauretania. Among these captives the center of interest was the 
little lad, Juba II, heir to the Mauretanian throne. It was only a 
few years later that the same Forum witnessed the return of young 
Octavian after his defeat of Anthony and Cleopatra. In his train as 
captive he led Selene, their little daughter, destined to become in- 
terested in the young captive, who had suffered her fate before her. 
Drawn together, the two young aliens fell in love and were married, 
leaving Rome to found a kingdom of their own with Cherchell, on 
the North African coast, as its capitol. After tohe splendor of 
Octavian's court, it was only natural that they should seek to equal 
Rome in glory and magnificence, by surrounding themselves with 
all evidences of art, culture and luxury. 

The little city of Cherchell, founded by them, is all that is left 
of their glory. The palace, only a heap of ruins, claims the travel- 
er's admiration for its beautiful mosaics, still distinct and delicate 
through all these years. 

Near the city, at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, rises 
their tomb, guarding the last traces of the romance. 

More interesting, however, than either the palace or the tomb 
is the Cherchell museum. To its interest and possession the recent 
discovery of the sunken ship-load of statuary, probably destined for 
the decoration of the court of Juba II and Selene, has greatly added. 
Near this interesting collection is the wonderful statue of Apollo, 
recently unearthed by the plow of a farmer. Many conjectures 
as to its age and sculptor agree on the fifth century, and feel it may 
be a work of Phidias himself. 

The name and fame of Selene and Juba II have long since 
passed away, but this beautiful Apollo lives to shed a new light on 
their romance and an added glory to their brilliant court. 



"CASTILLOS EN ESP AN A. " 

On the evening of April 8th, the members of the "Cireulo <~as- 
tellano" will present, in the Barn, their play, entitled, "Castillosen 
Espana," (Castles in Spain). 

To those who are interested in Spain, in one way or another, 
this will afford a most excellent opportunity for satisfying that de- 
sire i" know more about t' is sunny land; and to those who have not 
as yet shown themselves particularly interested in Spain, this will 
prove the occasion for arousing and developing that hitherto neg- 
lected interest. 

"Castillos en Espana" was written by Sen >rita Marcial cs- 
peci illy for thai purpose which it so admirably serves K>f portray- 
ing to the American born a glimpse of the picturesque life in Spain.

Local color is strongly emphasized throughout the play, and is 
brought out not only in the scenery, but by the groups of street 
urchins playing their little games, by the Spanish dancers, famous 
for their grace and beauty, and by the moonlight serenades, symbols 
of romance and love. 

The story of the play, though centering about a Marquesa and 
the Duque, to whom she has been engaged since childhood, deals, 
nevertheless, largely with the peasantry, those people who, of all, 
are the most picturesque and the most interesting in Spain. 

It is three years since a Spanish play has been given, and it is 
felt that the present effort will be well worth the waiting. 



THE FAIR MAID OF THE WEST. 



On Saturday evening, March 18, 191 1, the Harvard Chapter 
of the "Delta Upsilon" fraternity presented Thomas Haywood's 
old comedy, "The Fair Maid of the West," at the "Barn," part of 
the proceeds being devoted to the Student Alumna; Building Fund. 
The performance was in every way, finished and delightful. Special 
mention should be made of the unusually perfect effects in scenery 
and costuming and of the pleasing incidental music. 

The play was one of those charmingly romantic and impossible 
Elizabethan comedies, singing the praises of the "Good Queen 
Bess." It told how the young English gentleman, Spenser, fell [in 
love with the tavern-maid, Bess Bridges; how he defended her from 
insult, even at the cost of being obliged to flee the country; how Bess 
remained faithful to him during the years of his absence, and when 
the news of his death was brought to her, undertook a sea voyage 
to bring his body back to England; and how in the end, Spenser, 
who was not dead after all, and Bess were reunited and lived happily 
ever after. 

The acting was, on the whole, very successful. Mr. T. M. 
Spelman played Bess Bridges with a great deal of charm and win- 
somencss, though at times the voice control was not as well managed 
as it might have been; this, however, we recognize as a practically 
insurmountable difficulty, especially in passages where the expres- 
sion of strong emotion brings out all the force of a masculine voice. 
Mr. vSpelman's work in the scene where the news of Spenser's death 
is brought to Bess was especially commendable. Playing opposite to 
him in the role of Spenser, Mr. F. M. Eliot was exceedingly good, 
though at times he lacked a certain convincingness; this lasi fact, 
however, may well lie attributed to the lack of individuality in the 
character as drawn by Heywood himself; in fact we cannol help 
Ei 1 Ling that Mr. Eliot did much to give color to a somewhat colorless 
character. As Roughman, Mr. 0. W. Hausscrmann was excellent 
in every respect. In the rather weak and vacillating part of Captain 
Goodlack, Mr. T. S. Kenyon was quite realistic. Mr. C. B. Randall's 
Clem was delicate, fresh, and delightful. The King of Fez was

STUDENT ALUMNA BUILDING FUND. 

DISCOVERY! 

Before Christmas we thought we had made a discovery that, if 
every member of college brought back fifty cents, the fund would 
gain S700.00. Our experiment failed, owing to insufficient material 
from which to draw conclusions. We are going to try again, more 
scientifically, publishing the results by houses, in proportion to 
what we expected. Bring us fifty cents after vacation! 

AUCTION. 

After vacation all lost articles which have not been reclaimed 
will be auctioned off for Student Alumnse Building Fund. 

Broken jewelry will be solicited after vacation, and sold for 
the fund.

Cannot something be done about saving seats? The habit is so 
growing upon us that it is becoming a positive nuisance in the lec- 
tures given in College Hall Chapel, and in other large gatherings. 
Is it fair to hold seats for the tardy ones while others are standing all 
around you? Only too often the seat, reserved until the last min- 
ute, remains vacant because the one for whom it was saved "got lost 
in the shuffle," or decided not to come. To me it seems to show a 
narrow and selfish spirit, this refusing to let your own college- 
mates sit next to you, though it is not so intended, and I think that, 
in order to live up to our Student Government ideals of unselfish- 
ness, we should all strive to create a sentiment against it so strong 
that no one would want to reserve seats in a crowded hall.

.\ Junior said a short time ago, to the editor, that she intended 
to take walks, this spring, but she did not know where to start out 
or what was tin- prettiest walk to take. It seems incredible that 
there are Juniors and Seniors, too, who have never taken enough ad- 
vantage of our rare natural surroundings t:> discover for themselves 
our many beautiful country walks through woods and fields, by 
lakes and over hills. Xow that spring is really coming, may these 
unambitious ones find out all the hidden beauty spots! Instead of 
a trip to the Inn, try walking around the upper lake and into the 
woods beyond, where violets grow very thickly. Instead of playing 
bridgi • k" 1 OU1 beyond the goll links and play tag or roll down hill — 
it will do your soul good, and you will have a much better appetite 
for dinner and. be ide , -our table will be glad you are th :re. Do 

graduate, indeed, do not go beyond the Freshman class with- 
out knowing and appreciating fully the most ideal natural sur- 
roundings of your college.

STUDENT VOLUNTEER MEETING. 



A most interesting open meeting of the Student Volunteer 
Band was held in the Shakespeare House on Sunday, March 19th, at 
four o'clock. The meeting was opened by Dorothy Mills, who in- 
troduced Dr. Noble of India, to speak on her work as a medical 
missionary. 

The need of doctors, particularly women doctors, is very great 
in that country, where it has been estimated there is one doctor to 
every million and a half of people. For reasons of caste the women 
of India are most unwilling to have any treatment except by wom- 
en; so it was with the aim to train young Indian girls along these 
lines that the school and hospital were established in Ludiana, 
where Dr. Noble has been. 

As this medical school is practically the only Christian wom- 
an's medical college, girls flock to it from all parts of India. There 
are two courses offered, — a two years' course, which gives a. training 
for a position as a doctor's assistant or a druggist, and a four-year 
regular medical course. Requirements, about the same as those of 
any American university, and a knowledge of the English language, 
must be met before entrance. The Indian girl, often entering med- 
ical college at the age of seventeen, must do good work in school in 
addition to passing four sets of examinations. At the end of the 
first year these are given by her regular professors; at the end of the 
second, strange doctors from different parts of India assign the 
questions; while a1 the end of the third and fourth years she goes to 
the government officials, who test her knowledge with oral ex- 
aminations. Failure to pass these last severe requirements may 
keep her from getting her diploma. 

The hospital at Ludiana is a small group of one-story buildings 
built around a hollow square, and tightly screened from all outside 
view. The entire building is divided into two wards, one for the 

Mohammedan and one for the Hindoo women. This separation has 

been nec'ssarv OH account of class distinctions in that country. 
Here fre< treatmenl is given to the very poorest class of Indian 
women. Dr. Noble's description of the constant struggle of the 
doctors and nurses againsl the filth and dirt, in which the women 
have been used to living so unconcernedly, was pathetically amus- 
ing. 

( '1 mci ions of all kinds are mad to 1 he patii tits, fnej 
lowed to bring a relative, and often small children, and in 1 tt 

theii whole families, to the hospital, where t he burden oi 1 ai 
ins mi .ill these makes the hospital force's burden doubly heavy.
